Overview

​​The Firm represents companies from the real and services sector in commercial matters related to contractual and non-contractual liability. In particular, we litigate in the areas of telecommunications, hydrocarbons, financial law and commercial contracts such as supply, distribution, commercial agency, among others. 

The Firm attends litigation from administrative contracts, processes of nullity of administrative measures and restitution of rights, direct relief processes and tax liability. We represent our clients in proceedings conducted before the contentious-administrative jurisdiction related to insurance law and oil-related matters.

Also, the Firm has wide experience in dealing with class and popular actions, both before the contentious-administrative and ordinary courts.

The Firm has extensive experience in attending cases before arbitration courts in Colombia, Singapore, Shanghai and London, on behalf of domestic and foreign companies. We have participated in arbitrations mostly concerning insurance and reinsurance matters and other business issues in the areas of telecommunications and hydrocarbons, among others.

In addition, partners Ricardo Vélez Ochoa and Armando Gutiérrez Villalba have participated in several opportunities as arbitrators in national and international arbitration courts.
